Brain injury is one of the most devastating types of personal injury. It is almost always a life-changing injury that you must learn to live with and work around in your daily life. At Penner Law Firm in Connecticut, our head injury lawyers know the difficulties you will be dealing with. We are committed to helping victims recover the compensation you need to rebuild your life.
Causes of Brain Injury
Brain injuries often occur because of a jolt to the head, usually because of an auto accident or a fall. Medical malpractice can also result in a brain injury because of oxygen deprivation during a procedure.
Although the brain floats in fluid inside your skull, it can be easily damaged when it collides violently with the inside of your skull, similar to shaking an egg inside its shell. This occurs often in car accidents because your body and your brain continue to move forward even as the car stops suddenly. This throws the brain against one side of the skull and then the other as it rebounds. The delicate tissue of your brain is easily injured by these violent forces.
Diagnosing the extent of your traumatic brain injury requires a comprehensive look at your brain injury symptoms, like memory loss and personality changes. Your doctor may perform neuropsychological testing and brain imaging tests to determine the proper course of treatment for your brain injury.
